I have been overweight pretty much all of my life, with my highest weight reaching a whopping 356 pounds. I thought about and began working towards obtaining gastric bypass surgery about a year and a half ago. I was scheduled a few days ago, August 6th, 2007. I am home now and the only problems I am having currently is a lot of gas pain, which I was warned about. Of course I am still only on liquids - so we'll have to see as I am allowed to eat more of a variety of foods.
